Base is a set of four knives and a knife block designed by Piet Boon for Serax produced from the highest-grade German steel in one solid form giving the knives are a sculptural look.
Intended for use both at home and for professionals, the design challenge was to tick off all the requirements for professional use and at the same time come up with an innovative design. The result, however, is Studio Piet Boon at its best: no compromises in terms of functionality and no unnecessary details. Straightforward, elegant and timeless. “We have focused on the transition from handle to blade. By making them from one piece of metal, the knives are given a sculptural look. This gives them a no-nonsense, pure and even a somewhat masculine character,” says Piet Boon.
The special feature of the four different knives – chef’s knife, carving knife, bread knife and Japanese santoku knife – is that they all have the same length. This is not a coincidence, of course, but a self-imposed requirement to make them fit perfectly in the knife block at the same height. A central magnet in the block ensures that the knives are always stored perfectly vertically. A simple line system makes it easy for the users to distinguish the knives in the block.
